Hard Rain and the subsequent jam lead off a pretty amazing 2nd set - the lead from Dark Star into an acoustic-driven Mountains and back again is really what it's all about for me - Phil understands the lifeblood pulse of what makes this music so great better than anyone else out there.

Listen to "Hard Rain" then go out and force your govt to as they start out the show "Test me, test me, why don't you arrest me."
But remember our resistance founded in Love will starve these dark beast..

Thank you, Phil, for putting this line-up together and making the music that you're making. It means more to me than words can tell. Everyone I talked to on the way out was blown away, smiles on their faces and love in their hearts. Till the next time....
Thanks so much for taping and for getting it up on LMA.
Subject: So glad we made it........
I even thought the Jackie songs fit in well and I hope he sticks around with this combo, it could produce some real treasures in the future if he does.
This recording is nice but doesn't give the full majic of the evening, Phil's bass was majestic and these don't do it justice butI'm grateful all the same to have them.
The large moon overhead and the "Mountains" in my head will form a memory I will not soon forget.
THANK YOU PHIL !!!!!!!!!
Subject: Thank you Phil!
Subject: Very nice
Speaking of the songs performed, why are there some glaring omissions from recent PL shows? Blow Away, Foolish Heart, Baby Blue, El Paso...and especially JACK STRAW?! I don't think I've ever heard a Phil and Friends Jack Straw...c'mon, Phil.

Without going into too much detail about Jackie Green, I can say he was the least dead experienced played, but still shinned through as a solid newcommer. The shinning star this night was Steve Molitz on keys, who I will get to in my specific reviews of each set.
Set 1: Short and satisfactory. Bertha opener is always exciting and was executed well with Jackie on lead vocals. Big River seemed unguided and uninspired. Not even thinking back to the heydays of Grateful Dead, just in comparison with other Phil Big Rivers i have heard. First time ever Midnight Rider cover would have made Duane proud. Set closer Deal is expected and satisfactory. Overall set 1 was short and to say that you will be performing three FULL sets and starting off with a six song set is a little whimpy.
Set 2: Acoustic. The dead selections for the acoustic set were primo. Brokedown, Ripple, Deep Elem, Friend of the Devil (we'll forgive the repeat from the following nite since tonite it was acoustic). I was not a fan of the two other songs that I did not recognize. They could have busted out Monkey and Engineer, China Doll, The Race is On, SO MANY OPTIONS. I guess when Phil says he's going to play an acoustic set, I expect all dead songs or dead common covers. Again, I have high expectations.
Molitz shines through on grand piano with incredible technical accuracy which tops ANYTHING ive ever seen him do, including with Partical.
PS- Phil on standup bass, PRIMO!!
Set 3: Baller Hard Rain opener with Jackie Green on vocals with as much passion as he would have all nite. Great opener and sure to be a P&F stapple from now on. Set 2 was trippy as f##k with a full That's it for the other one into Darkstar>Mountains>Dark Star. Saw the DS>MOM>DS trio in Hunter, NY this summer, so I was hopping for something different, but it was still great for a newcommer or someone who didnt see it recently. China>Rider closer is energetic and expected after teased so much the nite before at the fillmore during viola lee. High energy and good times.
Not Fade Away encore is kind of common and I would have apreciated something else, but again, im hard to please.
Good show, great energy, Molitz kicks ass, Thanks so much again Phil.
Subject: Thank you for this show!!!!
Set 3 went like this: Hard Rain Gonna Fall (beautifully sung by Jackie!) > space jam (with vocal color magic) > Cryptical (grate Phil/Larry jam) > The Other One > spacey magic (Larry pedal steel) > Dark Star jam!! > Dark Star (BEAUTIFULLY sung by Phil!) > Dark Star fast jam > slow space jam > slow jazz space jam > Mountains of the Moon Magic!!!!!!! (provided by Phil on vocals) > mountains (have you ever drifted with the sea current or at least into the people surrounding you?) jam > mind blowing sound circling round the rocks jam > fast paced jam with cool snare drum > Dark Star!! (Phil!!!) > China Cat Sunflower (sung by Jackie... how'd he learn all this stuff so quick??) > Jerryesque segue by Jackie into Know You Rider, with soft gentle drizzles provided by Jerry smiling down from "on high" during "cool Colorado rain." oh yes he was there and he was a smilin'. (He blew over a mike just for the hell of it earlier in the show too - in between songs of course!) How's that for magic? Catch this tour if you can!
Peace Love Light, RR XOXOX
